Piers Morgan slams Phil Foden and Mason Greenwood as GMB host brands pair 'Covidiots' after England hotel shameSeptember 8, 2020
PHIL FODEN and Mason Greenwood have felt the wrath of Piers Morgan after their Covid-19 hotel shame.
England boss Gareth Southgate sent the pair home after they broke squad lockdown rules to sneak two girls into their rooms in Iceland.
And the incident left Good Morning Britain host Morgan fuming, branding the pair "covidiots".
He said on Tuesday's show: "They're young men who knew the rules… why was there not enough security to protect them for themselves?"
"They're living the dream for teenagers and young people.
"And now they're going to miss their first game because they have to be shamed."
He added: "They're covidiots."
Both Foden, 20, and Greenwood, 18, have apologised for their rule breach – having reportedly asked FOUR girls to come back to their hotel.

The pair were filmed with Nadia Sif Lindal Gunnarsdottir, 20, and Lara Clausen, 19, in footage that was leaked to the Icelandic media.
With the Three Lions set to ban both stars for four games, Morgan was left wondering how they were able to sneak the girls in to start with.
He earlier tweeted: "Their selfish reckless stupidity is bad, obviously.
"But how were they able to do this?
"Footballers need babysitting – by security guards – to protect them from themselves."
With both Manchester City and United releasing statements condemning their academy products, some have defended Foden and Greenwood in their actions.
Former City and England winger Trevor Sinclair hopes the focus is on allowing the duo to learn from their mistakes.
He tweeted: "Boys will be boys. Let’s not destroy our own young players. Learn and be better, end of."
